FaceTime might have been around for some time but Apple had pretty much just ignored it ever since it was release in 2010 and that is probably why most people prefers to use some other chat clients like Skype.
However, it has been reported that Apple is finally ready to give the FaceTime the update it needs and that it will finally be getting a group chat when the new iOS 11 arrives.
The Group chat feature has been around for some time now and finally, Apple is catching up. We still do not know how it works or what new features will be added but the fact that it is coming in good enough for many of us.
Some fans are afraid that the features will only be offered with the upcoming Apple iPhone 8 which could help push the new iPhone but it will not sit well with the other users.
